Ninja Polish Shillelagh - Swatches and Review


Top O'The Mornin'! Okay, fine, it's afternoon but I have a great St. Patrick's Day polish to show you today! Ninja Polish Shillelagh! A shillelagh is an Irish walking stick but it's probably my favorite Irish word to say ever! You can't say it without sounding like you have an Irish accent! \shə-ˈlā-lē\

Ninja Polish Shillelagh is a gorgeous green shimmer - described by the maker as follows:

shil·le·lagh (sh-ll, -l) Noun - An irish word for a cudgel made of blackthorn, oak, or other hardwoods. Usually slightly smaller than a walking stick or cane. Good for quick repetitious beating of individuals. Also used by some witty irish males to refer to their ..er...um....well you can figure it out! Also known to be used by Leprechauns to call their rainbows! 

Ninja Polish Shillelagh from the Enigma collection is a magically delicious polish that reaches through the rainbow for the most perfect shades of green with the most magical sparkle. Shillelagh is unlike most color shifting polishes because it requires no base color, or 'underwear', and is opaque in 2-3 coats, all on its own. It contains all the color shifting shimmer and sparkle that you can handle on your nails! This polish needs to be seen in person to be appreciated fully.  This polish is being released in conjunction with not only St Patrick's day (fun fun) but also with the theatrical release of Oz, the Great and Powerful...so exciting! So get your bottle of Shillelagh...it's magically delicious! 


Such a colorful description! It really is an intense shimmery green and shifts from a bright grass green to almost a blue green and back to a lighter grass green. Application and formula were great and I had no issues. If you have shorties, you will probably only need 2 coats. I used 3 coats and NO top coat for the photos.

This polish, along with another St. Patrick's Day polish I'll be showing you tonight or tomorrow, will launch on Saturday, March 9, 2013.
